The Source

Judaic imagery and concepts lie at the very heart of Western Tradition in art through the influence of Christianity. Nevertheless, Jewish art is both distinctive and radical, and has influenced the Modern Movement in art more than is commonly realised. Artist and former head of Sotheby's Judaica Department, David Breuer-Weil will chart the significance and ramifications of Jewish symbols, discussing examples from over 2000 years of history, from ancient times to the present day. He will also discuss how some of these motifs may continue to determine powerful aspects of the future of art.
